Jiro, a little boy, feels sick. His father takes him to see the doctor. She diagnoses a harmless case of cat flu. However, according to the doctor, this means that Jiro must be a cat. As father and son try to cope with the boy’s new identity, things go awry. Jiro’s father wishes him to connect with other cats at the animal shelter, but Jiro gets scratched. Complying with a handbook on raising cats, Jiro’s father sends his son outside. This leads to encounters with a friend, with nature and with a wild white cat. In the end, though, everything will feel right again.
